but people who like obama like the future. >> the unemployment rate is expected to hold stead yes but don't be surprised it ticks up. a big move down the previous month and it has been erat he can but one thing we have consistently seen it comes to jump in one direction and backtrack. whether up or down. if we see it increase even if the payroll figures are ok expect that obviously to be the big story. chris: the question is how will this affect women? once again, this is a big point. 9% of the vote is working women and they decide late. this is one of the weirdnesses about electoral politics. women vote at the last minute. >> you talk to campaign strategists and democratic strategists and say the one group of people we don't understand are women. perhaps that doesn't surprise most of the men. but they do say that women decide erratically and they decide very carefully. and analyze everything. they're much less gut voters than men are. look at the group of women that are particularly affected. it's the white, working class women. they are unemployed at greater ratse than men are. they hav
has had one of the biggest drops in unemployment. when obama took office, michigan was a mess because of the auto industry. they've had a huge drop of unemployment. even though they a little bit higher now than michigan. and i was struck that governor kasich suggested that everybody was for the auto rescue. no, they weren't. most republicans, with the exception by the way of president george w. bush who let it happen with actions he took, were against the auto rescue. so i don't understand, well i do understand, but people just don't want to take responsibility for where they stood on that issue. >> this was a question, carly about the auto bailout, about what role government -- direct government money would play in restructuring these companies. >> that's right. and who stands first in line to be repaid? is it the unions? or is it debtors and creditors? that was the fundamental question. and the truth is, it is disingenuous and factually inaccurate to say that republicans weren't for the rescue of the auto industry. the question was how. and what. and who would be repaid. but let me

by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will result, according to a study by the national medicination of independent businesses, with a 700,000 job loss which we cannot afford. governor romney has suggested a tax reform proposal that lowers the rate of taxation but makes the tax code more efficient and simplifies it resulting in seven million new jobs the next 10 years. that is the choice. in ohio, they are choosing mitt romney and that is where the enthusiasm is. >>chris: one of you talked about the issue of women and the two campaigns have been battling for months overwhelm and the polls seem to indicate that, in fact, romney has succeeded to at least some degree depending on the poll in closing the scene december gap for women preferring obama over him. this week, i
obama will carry colorado. >>chris: now, the economy, which everyone agrees is the number one concern for voters, senator johnson, in wisconsin, let me put up some numbers. the unemployment rate is now nationally down to 7.8 percent and g.d.p. growth in the third quarter rose from 1.3 percent in the second quarter to 2.0 but, still, it is a weak recovery, but, are the president's policies starting to turn things around? >>guest: no, we have had a meager recovery, and it has been tepid and all you can say as far as the g.d.p., it is less bad news. after the wisconsin debate, wisconsin saw governor romney is a man of integrity and intelligence, a man with a plan, unlike president obama who has no proposals to save social security or medicare or unlike the democrats in the senate who have not pass add budget in three years. people want real leadership. that is what they see in governor romney and paul ryan, someone with the courage to put forward real proposals. >>chris: now, the economic recovery, even though unemployment is down to 7.8 percent, no president has been re-elected with une
elections. host: pennsylvania -- 20 electoral votes. in 2008, barack obama won by 10%. unemployment in the state is nearing what we have nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting a lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes -- was so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground in pennsylvania, at least the moment? guest: the essential difference is that ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats of done well as they have captured the suburbs of our state in these last presidential elections in recent years. that has been the defining difference -- you have the big swath of in the middle, of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area. obviously the cleveland area in the northeastern part of the state is democratic. the cincinnati part in the southwest is more republican. ohio has a larger pool of the swing voters, if you will, and more evenly balanced between the democratic and
by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot here in ohio and that will result according to a study by the national federation of independent businesses with a 700,000 job loss which we cannot afford. so, governor romney instead has proposed pro-growth policies including a tax reform proposal that lowers the rate of taxation, but makes the tax code far more efficient, simplifies it and, that will result in 7 million new jobs, over the next ten years. that is the choice people have and in ohio, you know, they are choosing mitt romney, and that is where the enthusiasm is. >> chris: gentlemen i want to move on and one of you talked about the issue of women, and, the two campaigns have been battling for months, over women, and the polls seem to indicate that in fact romney has succeeded to at least some degree, depending on th

getting darker and darker and darker. president obama and governor romney abandoning campaign trails today and tomorrow. here now, steve moore. steve, we broke news earlier this hour that the labor department was going to go ahead with those numbers, with the unemployment number on friday. that was a big deal in the big question that we had earlier. people are not at work so it seems clear they could delay it, but, of course, people would be wondering that is a little too convenient with election on tuesday. the most important survey of all, in terms of the selection, a week from tuesday, is that survey of unemployment that comes out on friday. the president obama gets a good number, it will be a huge lift for him. if we go back to 8% unemployment, which is very possible, then, you know, that really throws the momentum in the last weekend to met robbie. do not forget, remember the 2005 election -- ashley: we are pretty seeing some disruption and certainly the storm is big enough, we have seen the campaign, both campaigns knocking back their schedule, canceling events. who wins? >> that is
their 20's and their child to bed rooms staring out at fading obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. gerri: doesn't that crystallize the problem for young voters? >> sure when you have 15 percent unemployment in you have 50 percent of them who cannot find jobs once they graduate. stayinon the counter. the problem is, though, you still have the recent poll, a harvard poll has obama leading men romney by 90 percentage points in tat age demographic and 18-29. these are your classic case obama's zombies. barack obama, is campaigning in his actual policies are going to make it a lot harder for young peopleo find jobs and pay up this enormous debt and is sitting on our doorstep. yet there will still cast a vote by and large for barack obama in today's. gerri: you look at the way he campaigns. here is money for you, money for you, student loans, free birth control demand for you, i'm going to give you, you know -- >> foods stamps or immigration documents. >> had is that sense to you. >> i think it sounds awful. i personally would not be sucked into voting f
unemployment rate there, and i think there is a reward for obama for the sense among those voters that things are getting a little better here than maybe they otherwise would be. >> in a state that feels like it has not been than the country economically for a while, and you cannot understate how important the auto bailout political dynamic has been there. last week after she squabbled over exactly what romney said about the bailout in his op-ed, that was the most viewed "new york times" op-ed. the romney campaign is trying to project strength in ohio. john kasich came out and said romney will win ohio, but the tactics really speak and are telling a different story. they released an ad that is highly misleading. i'd love to play just that install clip of thatted. >> mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he is supported by lee iacocca and the troy news. obama took gm and chrysler to bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italens that will make jeeps in china. >> chrysler is not moving production to china. in fact, they are expanding u.s. production, and the fact they are going to sell jee

out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is exclusively about weather patterns and fema and that gives a natural advantage to obama. the president looks for an intervoning cause and unable to do it yourself and the weather may help him. it may wind up that mother nature was the october surprise. >> i agree. >> i agree. >> steve: thank you for yoining us on this busy and storm monday morning. >> thank you. >> steve: straight ahead, she tried to rock the boat. >> i don't care who you vote for as long as it is obama.

of me. barack obama has a record. at every turn he has fought very hard to get unemployment benefits extended for people who are out of work. i saw that. when the gulf oil spill next up, he fought very hard to get bp in there and to take care of the people in those areas. i'm not hearing the democrats expand on this. to my view, and i am an independent, he has done a very good job of taking care of all of the people on every issue. it is not just the economy. it is improving. i can go to a store in michigan every day now and see a help wanted sign. guest: barbara, i appreciate you outlining that so clearly from the point of the deal of an independent voter. i do believe that the president has acted in what he believes was the best interest of the american people. that has not always been popular in my own party. in this very rapid news cycle, i think we tend to forget where people come from. he made the decision on the auto industry rescue and how it would be structured because he truly believe that it was in the best interests of an entire sector, not just in michigan, ohio, indiana
and the parking spot. this is part of a much -- part of the larger conspiracy that obama has wanted to expand the federal government, expand food stamps expand unemployment. he wants high unemployment because all of those people will have to vote for him or they'll be afraid to lose their disability checks, lose their veterans checks. it is all this huge conspiracy. that's why he wants to expand federal government which he's not because then they'll be loyal to him. it is much more of a dictatorship role that they're sort of creating for him. >> stephanie: unbelievable. >> could it be the disabled people came back from afghanistan? that. >> stephanie: there's that. >> eric boehlert, great stuff. happy pre-election week. we'll talk to you next week. >> okay. >> stephanie: love you. there's eric boehlert of media matters. 29 minutes after the hour. right back on "the stephanie miller show." the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is you
